“Pure Pulp” brings together a diverse group of sculptures, books, and two-dimensional works created from 2000 to the present by twenty artists who have participated in the prestigious residency programs at Dieu Donné, a papermaking studio in New York City, founded in 1976. At a time when new media technology such as 3-D printing, high-performance cameras, and digital equipment are increasingly pervasive and affordable, Dieu Donné offers a unique return to traditional materials while applying innovative methods, making handmade paper particularly relevant to contemporary artists working today.
